ZeBu-Server Meets Demands of Processor, Graphics Designs; Scalability Serves Broad Range of Design Sizes, StylesSAN JOSE, Calif.-- September 1, 2009
, the leader in hardware/software co-verification, today announced that its new emulation system ZeBu-Server supports high-capacity designs of up to one-billion application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) gates.
As a result, it meets the demands of high-end processors and graphics designs, and is suitable for all system-on-chip (SoC) verification needs across the entire development cycle, from hardware verification, hardware/software integration to embedded software validation. ZeBu-Server’s scalability serves a broad range of design sizes and styles, from 10-million to one-billion ASIC gates, in increments of 10-million, 20-million or 40-million gates. Used as a multi-user, multi-mode accelerator/emulator, its typical performance is approximately 10 megahertz (MHz) on a 40-million gate design.
ZeBu-Server is priced from $150,000, less than a penny per gate for large configurations.
Nine of the top 10 semiconductor companies use ZeBu (Zero Bugs) emulation platforms in their verification flow. These platforms are used for SoC hardware verification and software development to shorten time to tapeout, improve product quality and eliminate costly respins, while shortening software development time ahead of silicon.About EVE
